Protesters in the “Paris Against Trump” group planned a “No Trump Zone” for Bastille Day celebrations in one of the biggest public areas in Paris, NBC reported.
The “No Trump Zone” will be at the Place de la Republique the day before Bastille Day, and will include music and dancing. On the holiday on July 14, the activists will hold a march called "Don't Let Your Guard Down Against Trump" to show that they do not welcome the U.S. president in the city.
Members of the activist group against Trump wrote on the event’s Facebook page that they do not approve of Trump’s policies on climate change, immigration and “his sexist, islamophobic and racist” policies.
“For the people of France, who gave the Statue of Liberty to the American people, Trump is not welcome in Paris,” according to the post.
The tone of the protests against President Trump come at a contrast to the planned celebrations for this year’s Bastille Day, as this year marks the 100-year anniversary of the U.S. entering World War II.
French President Emmanuel Macron invited Trump to the city for the celebrations, in an event that was meant to tout the cooperation between France and the U.S. Macron and Trump plan to dine together at a lavish restaurant on the second floor of the Eiffel Tower Thursday, treating themselves to blue lobster and caviar.
